Aston Martin has released some information and photographs on their new One-77. As expected, the car looks stunningly beautiful, and the performance that is promised is outstanding.
Both the exterior and the interior design are very good. The interior will probably contain every single piece of luxury the passenger or driver would want. According to the Aston Martin CEO, the interior design will be minimalist, and every object will have a specific purpose.
As far as performance goes, this car isn’t meant to take the Bugatti Veyron head on – but it’s not far away from that either. The 7.3L V12 produces a massive 750 horsepower and about 533 lb-ft of torque. Aston Martin has managed to increase the power of their previous 6.0L V12, and at the same time to reduce its mass by 10 per cent. Altogether, this car is 25 per cent lighter than the DB9. Judging by the power and torque of the engine, it is estimated that the One-77 will have a top speed of around 220 mph, and will accelerate from 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds or less.
The braking will be done using Aston’s Carbon Ceramic Matrix brake technology, which produces less heat.
